Bethenny Frankel Miscarriage

It’s been a big week for Bethenny Frankel, but I’ve come to learn that every week is a big week when you’re a Skinnygirl with anything and everything on your plate…and that plate is seen by a gazillion viewers, followers, haters, and fans. Oddly enough (and I didn’t think it was odd at all until my dear friend–a true Fan-kel–pointed it out to me over cocktails), I have no opinion on Bethenny. Whatsoever.

I think she’s savvy and smart. I think she’s equally annoying. I love her clothes. I hate her brashness, but I think I’m secretly jealous of it. She is the one reality star that should push my buttons–good or bad–but doesn’t. That said, I am following her current reports much more closely because I am equal parts saddened by her heartbreaking news, intrigued by her ability to garner such strong reactions, and a ridic lover of bad daytime talk shows. Quite the combo!

After the new season of Bethenny Ever After premiered Monday night, the reality maven was a guest on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. In between drinking games and pleading the fifth, Bethenny spoke about her, much touted, new foray into the realm of daytime chitchat. Following this announcement on WWHL, The Hollywood Reporter expanded on Bethenny’s growing empire.

The star, known for her sharp tongue and keen business skill, revealed to Andy Cohen that her new talk show, Bethenny, will premiere June 11th on Fox. Citing the premise of her show, she opined, “Instead of watching my marriage, my sex life, my conversations about money, I want to involve you.” Hmmm, I am not sure I want to be involved in ALL that, but I’m curious nonetheless.

Bethenny continued, “It’s a girlfriends show, but it’s really honest…[j]ust what’s really going on, have an honest conversation without it being just me being in the fishbowl. I want to involve everyone in the conversation.” It sounds, well just fabulous! When she stated she planned on having celebrity guests as well, I was sold. Now if only I could quit my day job, so I can sit home to watch it…

The one-hour daily program is being produced by Telepictures Productions, with Bethenny and Ellen DeGeneres serving as executive producers. I do love some Ellen! The Frankel/Hoppy clan will be spending some time in Burbank, as that is where the show will be taped.

Additionally, it will get a special preview in test markets for six weeks. Those of you lucky enough to live in New York and Los Angeles will be among the first viewers. Wendy Williams was successful with a similar strategy. If Bethenny prevails on these selected stations, she will be in good company on the daytime talk circuit. It was reported that Jeff Probst, Katie Couric, and Steve Harvey will also be joining the increasing crowded world of sofa chats, cooking segments, and book clubs.

And speaking of book clubs, Madame Frankel has had three lifestyle and nutrition books to hit the New York Times’ bestseller list. She is now taking the plunge (get it?) into fiction as her first novel, Skinnydipping, will hit the shelves May 1.

While in the clubhouse, Bethenny also opened up about her recent miscarriage and some resulting health issues. Earlier Monday morning, she revealed her tragic ordeal on the TODAY Show when asked if she had plans for more children. A tearful Bethenny responded, “We were pregnant with a second baby, and at eight weeks, I miscarried.”

Understandably, Bethenny, who is the mother to 21-month-old Bryn with husband Jason Hoppy, has been struggling during such a difficult time. She shared, “There are so many…things that come with [miscarrying]. You go through a roller coaster of emotions…[a]bout your age, about being a woman, about, can you have another baby, are you a failure to your partner? You go through a million different things.”

On WWHL, she revealed to Andy, “As a result of [the miscarriage], I was on an antibiotic Doxycycline. I took it at night without any water, went to bed and it burned a hole in my esophagus. I have a hole in my heart and my esophagus.” She retorts, “But it’s okay — I’m feeling good. I wouldn’t be drinking a Skinnygirl Margarita if I weren’t feeling good!”

I’m glad to see she still has her signature cocktail and signature sense of humor. Our thoughts are with Bethenny and her family.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON BETHENNY’S REVELATIONS? WILL YOU BE WATCHING HER NEW TALK SHOW?

Bethenny Frankel is back! Whether you love her or loathe her, the mouth from TriBeCa is returning in her wildest, loudest, and craziest season ever! To prepare us, the Bethenny Ever After star is giving us the update on what’s going on in her life and what’s next for the lady in red.

Bethenny has admitted she wants to expand her family to include another baby. “We’re trying [to have another baby],” Bethenny revealed. “I’m a little more lax than someone at 41 probably should be.”

Sadly for Bethenny and husband Jason Hoppy, she disclosed that she recently suffered a miscarriage. Appearing on the Today Show this morning, the very open star, shared her tragic loss. “We were pregnant with a second baby, and at eight weeks, I miscarried.”

Clearly the situation has been devastating for Jason and Bethenny, who have opened up about considering adoption, and she isn’t ready to contemplate about trying for another child. “I’m not really thinking about it,” she admitted. “Until you become a woman you don’t know the things that come with being a woman. And I’m 41, and I don’t know. It’s not really my choice. It’s not really my option. The window’s closing.” Our thoughts and condolences to Bethenny and her family.

In the meantime she is happily focused on Bryn and where she will start nursery school. Bethenny makes it clear that despite her own prep school lineage Bryn will be a straight up public school gal! “We’re not caught up in the fancy private schools. We want to be able to walk her to school.”

Bethenny also discusses juggling mommyhood with personal time and she’s still plugging that yoga video! “Ever since having my baby, I want to be efficient with my time,” she explains to USA Weekend. “When she naps, I do 40 minutes of yoga. I wish I could just walk out of here and go to yoga for an hour and 15 minutes.” Umm… excuse me, and correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t this woman have a live-in nanny who is also a character on her show? Does she really expect us to believe she isn’t able to step out for an hour and a half to work out?

And since she’s Bethenny, she’s giving us more dieting tips. “My entire platform is about indulging,” she says of living the Skinnygirl way. “Women deprive constantly. I indulge every day. No one ever got fat off one cookie.”

Moving on, as we all know, Madame Frankel Hoppy will be gracing the small screens as the hostess of her own talk show! So what is Bethenny going to talk about? “Everything,” she says. “It’s kind of what my show does, but this could be a dialogue rather than just showing what I’m doing.”

Now that she is talking about leaving reality television behind, rumor has it that Bethenny is also thinking of leaving NYC behind! In an effort to take her business to the next level–and conquer more of the media world–Bethenny thinks there will be more opportunities for her in LA.

Unfortunately, Jason wants to remain in NYC and close to his family, which is another thing causing major tension in their marriage. “She mocks him about it and calls him a mama’s boy,” a friend tells In Touch Weekly via their print edition.

Finally, tonight marks the season three premiere of Bethenny Ever After. In tonight’s episode Bethenny is celebrating the launch of a new Skinnygirl cocktail with a blow-out bash, with both old and new friends, including Today host Hoda Kotb. While Bethenny is enjoying the ever-expanding Skinnygirl business, Jason struggles with life in the public and wishes things were a bit quieter. A preview of tonight’s episode is below!

Bethenny Ever After premieres tonight on Bravo at 9/8c!
